Microsoft announces acquisition of Fungible to accelerate datacenter innovation

Jan 9, 2023 — Today, Micro­soft is announ­cing the acqui­si­ti­on of Fun­gi­ble Inc., a pro­vi­der of com­posable infra­struc­tu­re aimed at acce­le­ra­ting net­wor­king and sto­rage per­for­mance in dat­a­cen­ters with high-effi­ci­en­cy, low-power data pro­ces­sing units (DPUs).

Fungible’s tech­no­lo­gies help enable high-per­for­mance, sca­lable, dis­ag­gre­ga­ted, sca­led-out dat­a­cen­ter infra­struc­tu­re with relia­bi­li­ty and secu­ri­ty. (…) Wei­ter­le­sen »

Industry-Leading AMD Pensando DPUs Enable Accelerated Data Centers with VMware vSphere 8

AMD Pensando high-performance Distributed Services Card currently deployed at scale across hyperscalers, cloud service providers and enterprises —

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announ­ced that the AMD Pen­san­do Dis­tri­bu­ted Ser­vices Card, powered by the industry’s most advan­ced data pro­ces­sing unit (DPU)1, will be one of the first DPU solu­ti­ons to sup­port VMware vSphe­re® 8 available from lea­ding ser­ver ven­dors inclu­ding Dell Tech­no­lo­gies, HPE and Lenovo.

As data cen­ter appli­ca­ti­ons grow in sca­le and sophisti­ca­ti­on, the resul­ting workloads increase the demand on infra­struc­tu­re ser­vices as well as cru­cial CPU resour­ces. VMware vSphe­re 8 aims to reim­agi­ne IT infra­struc­tu­re as a com­posable archi­tec­tu­re with a goal of off­loa­ding infra­struc­tu­re workloads such as net­wor­king, sto­rage, and secu­ri­ty from the CPU by lever­aging the new vSphe­re Dis­tri­bu­ted Ser­vices Engi­ne, free­ing up valuable CPU cycles to be used for busi­ness func­tions and reve­nue gene­ra­ting applications.

The ful­ly pro­gramma­ble AMD Pen­san­do DPU is at the core of this shift toward soft­ware-defi­ned infra­struc­tu­re. The VMware vSphe­re Dis­tri­bu­ted Ser­vices Engi­ne and AMD Pen­san­do DPUs can help cus­to­mers redu­ce ope­ra­tio­nal cos­ts by uni­fy­ing workload manage­ment, impro­ving per­for­mance by free­ing up CPU resour­ces, and pro­vi­ding an added lay­er of secu­ri­ty by iso­la­ting infra­struc­tu­re ser­vices from ser­ver ten­ant workloads. Ear­ly cus­to­mers of vSphe­re Dis­tri­bu­ted Ser­vices Engi­ne, acce­le­ra­ted by AMD Pen­san­do DPUs, include a lea­ding finan­cial ser­vices pro­vi­der, a mul­ti-cloud solu­ti­ons hos­ter and a lea­ding busi­ness appli­ca­ti­ons com­pa­ny.

AMD übernimmt Pensando für 1,9 Milliarden US-Dollar

Nach der Über­nah­me von Xilinx und einem im Febru­ar ange­kün­dig­ten Akti­en­rück­kauf­pro­gramm in Höhe von 8 Mil­li­ar­den US-Dol­lar hat AMD per Pres­se­mit­tei­lung bekannt­ge­ge­ben, dass die Über­nah­me von Pen­san­do — einen Her­stel­ler von Hard- und Soft­ware für Daten­zen­tren — mit einem Kauf­preis von etwa 1,9 Mil­li­ar­den US-Dol­lar abge­schlos­sen wur­de.

AMD Expands Data Center Solutions Capabilities with Acquisition of Pensando

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announ­ced that it has com­ple­ted its acqui­si­ti­on of Pen­san­do Sys­tems in a tran­sac­tion valued at appro­xi­m­ate­ly $1.9 bil­li­on. Pensando’s dis­tri­bu­ted ser­vices plat­form will expand AMD’s data cen­ter pro­duct port­fo­lio with a high-per­for­mance data pro­ces­sing unit (DPU) and soft­ware stack that are alre­a­dy deploy­ed at sca­le across cloud and enter­pri­se cus­to­mers inclu­ding Gold­man Sachs, IBM Cloud, Micro­soft Azu­re and Ora­cle Cloud. The Pen­san­do team will join the AMD Data Cen­ter Solu­ti­ons Group, led by AMD Seni­or Vice Pre­si­dent and Gene­ral Mana­ger For­rest Norrod.

The data cen­ter remains one of the lar­gest growth oppor­tu­ni­ties for AMD. The addi­ti­on of the Pen­san­do Sys­tems team with their hard­ware and soft­ware port­fo­lio will enables us to offer cloud, enter­pri­se and edge cus­to­mers a broa­der port­fo­lio of lea­der­ship com­pu­te engi­nes that can be opti­mi­zed for their spe­ci­fic workloads,” said AMD Chair and CEO Dr. Lisa Su. “Pensando’s lea­der­ship DPU com­ple­ments our data cen­ter pro­duct port­fo­lio, enab­ling AMD to offer solu­ti­ons that can signi­fi­cant­ly acce­le­ra­te data trans­fer speeds while pro­vi­ding addi­tio­nal levels of secu­ri­ty and ana­ly­tics that will play a lar­ger role in defi­ning the per­for­mance of next-gene­ra­ti­on data centers.”

Pen­san­do will remain focu­sed on exe­cu­ting their pro­duct and tech­no­lo­gy road­maps, now with addi­tio­nal sca­le to acce­le­ra­te their busi­ness and address gro­wing mar­ket oppor­tu­ni­ties across a broa­der num­ber of cus­to­mers. (…) Wei­ter­le­sen »
